's a mess and owes 18 billion dollars from hurricane katrina. i mean, this is an agency that cannot manage itself. the inspector general wrote a long report last year saying the agency is mismanaged, it doesn't have systems in place that can talk to states. they can't talk to each other, they don't have the right computers in place and let me tell you, they are managing more disasters all the time. president obama has called more disasters than any other president in the last 20 years. fema is not the organization. give it to the local states, they're the people who can make these decisions and spend the money wisely. >> neil: i don't dismiss the role of a federal presence disasters like these, but when bottled water can't arrive to a site and folks supposed to weather the storm close, at antithesis of what you're supposed to adopt and send e-mails to people who don't have powers and texts to phone to people who don't have phone service, you can't make this stuff up. >> that's the problem with bureaucracy and not letting states handle this. if anybody can more money, go out to staten islan
this before, during katrina, even with your protest, with president public we have problems do not get cocky, we have a handle on it, i am getting the same sense with this storm. i don't think anything approaching the magnitude of katrina thank good but the treatment of officials and the way they back slap each other when the problem is still very much at hand, that is similar. what do you thick of that? >>guest: that is similar and it is absolutely wrong. what i see based on my experience there must be a lost miscommunication going on between state, local, and federal officials. if that is the case and let me tell you why i think it is the case, if you have food distribution, warming centers, and fema centers where you can fine up for the relief housed in the same place, and family shuts that down and no one is communicating that to the victims and the disaster area someone is not communicating with someone and that is serious. >>neil: thank you for your insight, michael. the stuff gets coordinated and sometimes botched when everyone is not on the same page. michael brown was warning about
. a few showers out of sandy. how will she rank all time? still the big question mark. hurricane katrina 108 billion in damage. hurricane katrina by far the all time costliest united states storm before sandy. >>announcer: ke was number two at one third of the cost. that was 26 billion. ike hitting houston. andrew in 92 hitting south florida. sandy now had 55 billionl plus. we have much more to go. the final total -- sandy could be the most costly. it'll be a top hurricane storm. some of that cost coming here, you haven't seen the -- the word is big time damage there. outstanding state and national parks. the sea shore, delaware, tough times getting through there. the bridge holding up okay but a lot of sand washing over the access roads here in route one and then of course here in garret where even pictures a little tough to come by. the whole state with the impacts from sandy obviously. 47 degrees right now. dew point 38, a quiet chilly kind of day and evening. nice evening to just stay in. 50 -- normal 62, watch -- sandy just shifted the weather pattern. we were talking about this, th

dollars from katrina! >> cenk: from katrina! bitter man. i love how bitter they are. my favorite was brit hume. he said: >> cenk: you know why? because sandy was hitting washington, d.c. at that moment. it's not like the government wasn't responding. president obama was all over the place. they were totally at work, they just sent home people like they did in new york and other places because they were in the middle of the storm. oh where's the government now? what a bunch of losers on fox news! all right now i had given the president some advice on how to attack mitt romney. if you remember, this was part of the ad we said he should run. >> it's not that mitt romney doesn't care about running, it's just that he isn't on your team. >> corporations aren't people, my friends. >> under bush, stock prices went up while job in connection and wages for us went down. mitt romney, what's the difference between you and george w. bush. >> if you raise taxes on the so-called rich, you're really raising taxes on the job creators. >> stop this war on job creators. >> they're the same republicans with
into so much more, your husband was sent six weeks for hurricane katrina and it's reminiscent in light of what's happened with sandy. >> absolutely, it's interesting. in 1992 with hurricane andrew, 70% of the support forces were active duty forces and 30% were guard. with hurricane katrina. that flipped. currently with andrew there are 6600 guardsmen deployed to help out with that effort and i think the role of the citizen soldier has just become even more prominent. >> alisyn: well, you're so right and thank you for helping us appreciate the national guardsmen this morning. the book is national guard 101, a handbook for spouses. thank you for joining us. >> thank you. >> alisyn: all right. it's the fallout over the newly passed law in washington sedate that legalizes marijuana. hundreds of people now getting free passes. we'll explain. plus, in honor our troops for veterans day, we've got patriotic painting on the plaza. i'll talk to him about his inspiration next. ♪ [ female announcer ] e-trade was founded on the simple belief that bringing you better technology helps make you a be

health there. you and i have talked a lot about hospitals in the wake of katrina. why do people put the power in the basement? it seems to me the first thing that's going to go in a flood or any kind of, not even a major a storm, but a minor storm, is your basement's going to flood. >> this has been a bit of a technological whack-a-mole here, because we realized after katrina, and even after the blackout of 2003, we had to do something about backup generators in hospital. and so we moved the generators upstairs, but left the fuel pumps down in the basement. so we fixed the initial problem and have a secondary that no one seems to have thought about. >> okay, is that just complete stupidity, or is that, listen, it's financially expensive and people make the gamble, we're not going to invest the money and hope for the best. >> i think in this case, it was not paying attention to all of the details. i think people were well meaning. i don't think there was any sort of gross negligence here, except that somebody forgot an essential detail, in a situation that requires extraordinarily ex
to katrina victims and kerosene to japanese sue gnaw mee victims. in response to superstorm sandy, the organization brought this 9,000-gallon tanker from the west coast to new york passing out limited amounts of free fuel to storm victims. >> being in the petroleum business, we always get bad press. it's -- it's wonderful to be part of good press when it comes to fuel. >> this fuel is meant to power thirsty generators and vehicles, but storm victims themselves need fuel as well for their weary bodies. that's where this group of culinary volunteers come in using a mobile kitchen donated by red rob bit, an organization that usually provides free school meals, they are preparing restaurant-quality food for storm survivors. >> watching everything from a television set in a comfortable living room sa lot different than being out here. when you're out here, you really see the need and the -- and the despair on some of the faces. >> fema is also on site helping provide the basic necessities, including food, water, and warm clothes. as a recovery process continues in this hard-hit area. i
have a capacity to hurt for example, katrina, than to help, or blame any candidates themselves. there are a number of people who have been blaming this on the global warming. this probably hurts obama a little bit in that it adds to the general feeling that things are amiss in america. the one swing state most affected by this storm, pennsylvania, and if there's one place you could see the effect of hurting the voter turnout, it would be virginia. >> stephanie: why. >> i have been waiting for him to go through puberty for 15 years. it is telling how off his analysis is just looking at the polls that have come out about the president's handling of this. 90% of the american people say he is doing a good job. in terms of climate change he named a few politicians -- % >> stephanie: and obama didn't say i'm going to lower the level of the oceans as you recall. it is unbelievable. >> no, al gore said the president should have said that, and that's what the goal should be. any politician who uses that as a punch line should be punched in the nose. >> stephanie: exa
who are very familiar with their struggle. survivors of hurricane katrina. the group of students and typers from mississippi traveled north to new jersey this week to help clean up debris and rebuild homes. it will -- they will be spendge the entire week there including the thanksgiving holiday. the volunteers say a lot of people came and helped them after hurricane katrina hit their community so they just want to return the favor. >> great story, tori. >>> 78:24. there's a new survey of berkeley high school students suggesting that fewer students are taking weapons to school or they are coming to campus under the influence of drugs and alcohol. 0% of juniors reported taking a weapon to school this year. that's down from 15%. the number of 11th graders coming to school under the influence of alcohol and marijuana, that also fell to 35% down from 55% in 2008. >>> all right. 8:24. want to check in with sal. see what's happening on 880 in oakland. >>> you know a lot of people use that to get to the airport in oakland. we also checked in with the airport parking. so far it's not comp
went through hurricane katrina with our property in new orleans. unfortunately one consequence of the tremendous coverage that's provided at these events people tend to think that's not where i first imagine going for vacation activity or leisure activity. that's unfortunately a really bad counter intuitive result because the folks that work in these areas need the visitors. this area need the revitalization of people coming to see us and that's what we're lacking right now. >> what's the status of the gaming business today because we all read about what's happening in other places far from the united states. >> well it's mixed in the following way. there's a greater liberalization of gaming as what i describe as a normalization of gaming as a routine luxury activity and that's a good thing for our industry and for a company like mine. the largest market for gaming is now macau which is larger than all commercial gaming. >> is there a decline in las vegas and atlantic city because of that? >> no. that hasn't happened. macau market is driven by chinese and hong kong and taiwan a

-generated." it was almost like here you had the media championing the idea of bipartisanship, but with hurricane katrina they went in the opposite direction and they wanted demonization. >> help me out, what is good about it? what is good about the response? people are still dying. bob: it has six days. >> eight, but who is counting. >> my count it was last monday but maybe it is six days. the point is what he said here was a fair thing on say, they have done a remarkably good job, it was 8.5 million people without electricity and now it is 3 million. he deserves to get credit. why not? why not give him credit? >> what did he do? governor chris christie said you do a good job, thank you. what does he do? we are still looking for people. >> people are still looking for fema, and i am surprised they are applauding president obama for spending a lot of money. he has been green lighting spending for four years in office. he has a black belt in green light spending. >> presidents do not have a lot to do with state and local recovery and they shouldn't. if you have competent state and local government to hand
the woman with her three dogs and we've seen this before, al, hurricane katrina, for example, people risked their own lives because they didn't want to leave their pets behind. >> and first responders taking that just as responsibly and as important as rescuing any human. because they're so important. they become parts of the family. >> exactly. and we don't know how many dogs and cats and other pets have been taken into shelters, but meredith was on earlier mentioning the aspca and other organizations have stepped up to help. that dog's like, thank you, sir, thank you. i don't need any bacon bits or anything. >> look at that. >> hey, we also want to remind you, tonight's rock center with brian williams will be completely devoted to the recovery from sandy. you can watch it 10:00/9:00 central right here on nbc. >> incredible lineup there. and just ahead, kathie lee and hoda, but first, your local news and weather.
's katrina. >> americans are afraid to say they're voting against obama because they'll be accused of racism. >> your boss promised hope and change and he didn't deliver. >> i think you attributed only positive tough to mitt romney and you said barack obama didn't get anything done. >> comes down to this, one day. >> who are you voting for? >> i think you know. >> i feel pretty good. >> i feel great. >> last time you're going to vote for yourself? >> i don't think so. >> it's a great tradition. >> congratulations on a spirited campaign. looking forward to the results. >> feel great about ohio. >> expect that we'll have a good night. >> there's a lot of technical jargon in there. the candidate who has more voters is going to win. >> let's get right to our panel now. with me is ana marie cox of "the guardian," little anliana gil v and krystal ball my colleague. before i say anything else, i want to say i love you women. >> yeah! >> on a serious note, mitt romney tells us america is inches from the apocalypse, we're going to lose our freedoms and our foundation of our judeo-christian religion.
doesn't have a hurricane katrina response, there's going to be some rallying effect whenever there's a national crisis. this seems to have benefitted the president. he hasn't made any obvious mistakes. now, of course, there's still a bit of time, but i think by the time people become disenchanted with the response, that'll be sometime after the election day. so it does appear that mother nature is voting democratic this year. >> well, the images of the president and chris christie have been everywhere. of course, christie has been very outspoken as the rnc keynote speaker. he describes obama as, quote, blindly walking around the white house looking for a clue. i think there was a bit of a love fest between him and the president yesterday. let me play some of that. >> we spent a significant afternoon together surveying the damage up and down the new jersey coastline. so i want to thank him for that. he has worked incredibly closely with me since before the storm hit. i think this is our sixth conversation since the weekend. >> at the top of my list, i have to say governor christie,
barbour model in mississippi after the katrina disaster. he took that disaster and used the opportunity to basically rebuild some of those communities. it takes planning. it takes courage and leadership. i, in fact i suspect you will find in both those states with the governors. bill: that is great example. thanks for bringing that to light. let's bring to what fox news was reporting late last night with regard to libya. a big turn now. now we have this letter that was september out a couple weeks before the attack in benghazi which clearly showed the presence of al qaeda training camps in the town of benghazi. there was a lot of concern about this. where are you on this story today? >> well i think there's a huge gap between what happened and what the administration's told us. only the president can fill the gap with the truth and at the end of the day i think there is it lesz son to be learned and perhaps passed onto the kids. we had seals to ran to the ambassador's aid, in running to his aid they gave their lives. we have an administration that is running from the ambassador, perhaps
and unwater the city of new orleans after hurricane katrina. >> many others have been dispatched from illinois to share what they learned from katrina several years ago. >> reporter: how much water do we need to pump out? >> our estimates at this point in time are 300 to 400 million gallons of water. and it's growing. >> reporter: and even though there's not as much overall as there was in new orleans, he says the job in new york is much more difficult. >> it's not the amount of water that's the problem, it's where it is. >> it's where it is, yeah. >> and where it is is underground in miles and miles of subway and road tunnels. >> some of those tunnels are up to 2 miles long. and the only points into them is at each end. and that requires us to have some pumping capabilities that perhaps reach 1/2 mile to a mile long. >> another problem, the age of the tunnels. new york's subway system is over 100 years old. >> some places we could probably pump out quicker, but we don't want to collapse the tunnel. >> the next challenge, where to pump all that water. >> largely mostly sea water. right now we'
katrina the price of gas went up, but that's because that storm struck in a different region of the country. >> well, yes indeed. 25% of the nation's refining capacity is on the gulf coast. katrina was a category 5 storm which meant refineries near the coast took a lot more wind, a lot more water, although sandy was properly named a super storm, it didn't have the sustained wind that we see on the gulf coast with a category 5, and so you didn't have anywhere near the damage to the production facilities. but what makes the new york area, new jersey, new york, connecticut so complicated, matt in, terms of the supply system is you don't have that many refineri refineries. therefore you rely on pipelines and ports, and the ports took quite a bit of damage. you couldn't get barges and ships in there right away. >> right. >> the refineries weren't too badly damaged, but the pipeline was also shut down for a while because it exits on the water. >> let me ask you this then as someone who knows the industry and the delivery system very well. how long do you think this situation is goi
and would like to have you back. >> spoken as a governor who handled katrina. >> jobs and the economy fell opt heels of the october jobs report. what do the candidates need to tell voters in the final hours before we go to the polls? try running four.ning a restaurant is hard, fortunately we've got ink. it gives us 5x the rewards on our internet, phone charges and cable, plus at office supply stores. rewards we put right back into our business. this is the only thing we've ever wanted to do and ink helps us do it. make your mark with ink from chase. >>> iit the biggest issue of te election, putting americans back to work. on friday we received the latest national jobs report. the unemployment rate kicked up slightly to 7.9%. the economy added 171,000 jobs for context of just above what we need to do to keep up with population growth. 23 million americans remain un employed or underemployed and that is a sticky that stuck for a long time. if you lost your job today on average it would take you until next august to find one. maybe you find one sooner but maybe it takes you a lot longer. we w
. that is all right. i think we are aiming at the wrong target. during hurricane katrina we saw what corporations were pushing our government to do, to drop affirmative action standards, to relax immigration requirements so the corporation could go to mexico, and as far as way as thailand to bring in workers, and pay them less and go past american workers. i think we ned to look at the policies that are being driven by the corporations that enable these workers to -- that are getting these workers into the united states so they can work for wages. many corporations are paying workers substandard -- they are not able to afford healthcare. there is something else going on here. i'm not a con conspiracy cyst but i want to know what else is going on beyond this. >> i know the corporations don't make the law, we make the law. i know that it's the obama administration that is promoting welfare use and benefits use by immigrants. we are talking about legal immigrants. the whole premise of coming here is to get away from need, to make something out of yourself. there is also something else t
to the economy. that makes it the second most expensive storm in history after hurricane katrina. >> nearly half of new york city's deaths happened on staten island. secretary of state janet napolitano will be there today. anna werner is there. >> reporter: good morning. homes are destroyed. the storm threw cars like toys. that's what it looks like all down this street yet many residents say they believe they've been ignored. some residents of staten island have started calling it the forgotten borough. across storm-ravaged staten island, frustrations are mounting. >> we could have died! we couldn't breathe! we've got 90-year-old people. >> reporter: residents are outraged, claiming their community has been ignored in the days following sandy while aid pours into other parts of new york and new jersey. >> a lot of people are here. a lot of people are hurting. so, it's upsetting. >> reporter: power is out. hundreds of homes have been destroyed and dozens of streets are impassable. still, the city is planning to go ahead with its annual marathon, which kicks off on staten island's verrazano bridge
today is all about the response between sandy and katrina and just laying out there saying -- you know, big government isn't the enemy. you know. he quotes the old ronald reagan line where reagan got cheers. i'm from the government. i'm here to help. >> stephanie: rude, chris christie proved obama's point better than anyone ever could have that he has always been bipartisan. has always reached you know, across the aisle to help anybody who will work with him. >> yep. that's one of the missing narratives from this campaign. >> stephanie: it blew romney's whole closing argument. like that scene in "brute almighty" -- "bruce almighty." >> someone in the chat room said we have a chris christie like character and that would be alan grayson. that's a very good point. >> yeah. if we could get the right to stop, you know, stop trying to swat him down every time that he gets some traction. >> stephanie: yeah. exactly. oh, that's just -- that's just rude. >> stephanie: a lot of these -- he's up against a tea bagger. h
abysmal. fema is as much a failure now as it was at the time of katrina. i do not understand why there is not enough water in new york. all you have to do to get water to new york is put it on an airplane and fly it to kennedy air pour. all you have to do to get more generators it put it on an airplane and fly it to kennedy airport. you will you make sure you have enough gasoline is have a plan to get gas to new york. obviously they didn't preplan for the water. they didn't preplan for the generators. they didn't preplan for the gasoline. the answer is they didn't preplan. what do we have fema for if not for preplanning. the president getting all the credit, the minute he got dread and -- credit and pat on the back. same situation as benghazi. he loses focus. goes back to campaigner in chief rather than commander-in-chief. bill: this was you on friday night. westchester, ohio, southwestern part of the state. i was at the rally when i heard you say the following about president obama. >> he told us he would resign if he did this poorly. do you remember that? do you remember that h
